Bennion Center Faculty Awards


Public Service Professorship Award: What would you do with $7,500?

All faculty members at the University of Utah are invited to apply for the 2019-2020 Public Service Professorship award. Application deadline is Jan. 31, 2019. Sponsored by the Bennion Center, this award is designed to help a faculty member strengthen community-engaged learning experiences and opportunities tied to civic engagement, and also foster stronger partnerships with the local community. A prize of $7,500 is made possible due to the generous support of Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Dan Reed. The funds may be used in any way that enables the recipient to carry out the proposed project, such as reimbursing the recipient’s department for release time, paying a research assistant, travel to conferences, and purchase of supplies or equipment.
